Legal and Effective Hiring and Interviewing



Eighty to ninety percent of bad employees can be spotted in the hiring process if managers know what to look for. Even if you’ve conducted hundreds of interviews and hired numerous employees, it’s hard to know if you’re doing everything right. Should you screen by telephone? Have multiple interviewers? How do you get the most accurate information from references, who are often trained to just give the basics to prospective employers

This hiring and interviewing webinar will take you through the entire process, tackling the psychological as well as legal interviews that can make or break your hiring process. This webinar will help you make the interviewing process more effective and help you hire the right person, and learn which legalities you need to keep in mind throughout the process.

Making poor hiring decisions (and keeping bad hires) based on deficient interviewing skills costs companies millions of dollars every year.
